Surveys suggest that thirty per cent of the British population would identify with the statement that they are ‘spiritual but not religious’. Many ‘spiritual’ people consider religion to be a dirty word: it is a dull, formal system of creeds and rules that must be rejected. Indeed, they seem to consider that joining a religion is the equivalent of becoming a spiritual battery hen, constrained on all sides. They want to be ‘free-range’ believers.
